Focus Sam C Team

Press Release: Up and coming FMB World Tour rider Reilly Horan nabbed the freeride category win in the ‘Focus Become A Knight’ video contest by showcasing his solid freeride and big-bike skills on his home trails in Alberta, Canada. The prize? A Focus sponsorship package and a new Sam C SL Team bike.

The New Zealand native was also awarded a coveted wildcard spot to compete in the week-long Suzuki Nine Knights MTB 2016 Supersession in Reschenpass, South Tyrol, Italy, an event where he rode his Sam C SL Team. The multi-faceted course with a flowy freeride line, the ‘Big Bertha’ kicker jump and one of the largest quarterpipes ever built in mountain biking all made for a good opportunity for him to test out the 160mm-travel Sam C SL.

”It’s an exciting opportunity to have support from such a major brand like Focus to help reach my future goals and to develop as a rider,” Horan said. ”A huge shout out to Martin [Schamböck, Brand Director Focus Bikes] and the entire crew at Suzuki Nine Knights for being so rad and bringing all of this together!”
